Join us for CityTalks: Making Art Public: 50 Years of Kaldor Public Art Projects on Tuesday 10 September in Centennial Hall, Sydney Town Hall.
This CityTalks event explores the extraordinary work of John Kaldor. For 50 years, Kaldor Public Art Projects has created groundbreaking projects with international artists, changing the landscape of contemporary art in Australia with projects that resonate around the world.
It all started in 1969, with Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s Wrapped Coast at Sydney’s Little Bay. It was the first large-scale public art project of its kind in the world, as well as the first time an international contemporary artist had created a major new work in Australia.
Inspired by this success, Kaldor Public Art Projects became a pioneer in taking art outside museum walls and transforming public spaces.
The City of Sydney has proudly collaborated with Kaldor Public Art Projects for the last 10 years, investing more than $900,000 in temporary projects that have captured Sydney’s imagination. ‘What remains in the collective memory is what matters’ – John Kaldor
